Skip to comments.King Street Poll Watchers Absolved of Harassment
Posted on 11/01/2010 4:54:02 PM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
At one of the last poll watcher training sessions held by the King Street Patriots on November 1, Assistant Harris County Attorney Doug Ray made an admission that contravenes the media meme that charges KSPs poll watchers with harassing voters here in Harris County, Texas.
All week the media and Democrats have charged that voters were being harassed by King Street Patriots poll watchers and thus far county officials have not countered the claims being made by KSPs opponents. But this evening the myth has been busted.
During an address to those attending a late training session, attorney Ray admitted that most of the reports the county has gotten about hovering over voters has been blamed on poll judges and workers, not the King Street Patriots poll watchers.
After he spoke to those gathered, I asked Attny. Ray about his comments.
I asked Ray if he would say that most of the complaints his office received of hovering were blamed on the KSP poll watchers. Ray replied that, many of those complaints were of KSP poll watchers hovering. But he said that investigations proved the complaints to be baseless.
I said that many of the complaints that we got [were of KSP hovering] not most. Theres a variety of complaints, the complaints that you all have filed have come to us too. But many of the voter complaints were of poll watchers hovering over them but there have been cases where we investigated and found that it was the poll worker that was hovering and not the watcher.This means that claims of rampant intimidation being perpetrated by poll watchers is a false claim. The admission also means that reports filed by King Street poll watchers are true. Poll watchers have filed numerous first hand accounts saying that they witnessed poll workers and judges intervening as voters tried to vote. Simply put, the hovering, as Attorney Ray put it, has been perpetrated by poll workers, not poll watchers.
This is a startling admission by the county attorney, one that wholly destroys the claims made against the King Street Patriots.
Why the excerpt? Your blog is not on FR’s ‘excerpt only’ list y’know.... Just sayin’...
Please, those of you who Twitter or are on Facebook, spread this around!
Reporting Voter Fraud
The Republican Party has set up a National Hotline, which will be staffed with Attorneys to handle polling issues as well as possible voter fraud or intimidation.
1 - 888 - 775 - 8117. IF you even SUSPECT this is happening, PLEASE call for their free advice.
Why excerpt this? It might be of interest.
No restriction exists between your little blog and Free Republic.
Is there something in the blog post of which you are ashamed?
What a questionable thing to do, this excerpting. What are you hiding?
Do you just want blog hits? Is that it? That’s quite sad.
Are you as stupid as you act, moron? Click through and see that this IS the whole post, asswipe.
Thanks for your post.
It is of much interest.
Democrat voter fraud bookmark.
The ‘...publiusforum’ gives the appearance that there may be more.... ;)
By the way, lest I forget, if this is an indication of your intent to post full content in the future, then a sincere “Thank You!” is in order.
If so, then I think you will find the synergetic good will it engenders will far outweigh any short term loss in blog hits.
I'd say just ignore the blog police, but it is getting increasing hard to do. They try to ruin every thread that originates from a blog. I hardly consider yours a blog, you are doing real on-site reporting and I thank you.
Thanks. I appreciate the kind words. It is a bit galling that I spend my own money to fly to Washington D.C. (last month) and Texas (this month)and other places over the last 5 years to do on site reporting and these leftist creeps disrupt and attempt to drive freepers off the site. These useless jerks that have never done a thing for the country or the cause... well, not OUR cause, anyway. They’ve done loads for the leftist cause THEY work for!
Anyway, thanks for the kind words and for reading. I do enjoy doing it, after all.
Nah, we only bother the guys who pimp their blogs. Other bloggers are fine. Just ask Jimmeh (iloveamerica1980).
LOLOLOL! You are always good for a laugh! Thanks!
This means that claims of rampant intimidation being perpetrated by poll watchers is a false claim.
And you had to fly down to Houston and spend a week in Shelia Jack-Lee’s district to find that out about the KSPs?..... LOL.
